All the engines (tex, etex, pdftex, luatex, and their latex counterparts) are

packages (print/tex-collection-basic for TeX and print/tex-collection-latex for 
LaTeX).  The rest are a blend of teTeX and TeX Live 2009, as Greg pointed out.

appreciated.  Creating pkgsrc packages is trivial for most of LaTeX styles in 
TeX Live.

See print/teTeX/DESCR.  This will install teTeX and TeX Live packages to have 
features equivalent to those of teTeX-3.  Additional TeX Live packages (e.g., 
print/tex-IEEEtran and print/tex-algorithm2e) are also available in pkgsrc, but 
there is no meta package for those yet.
